These photos were taken by me during my holiday at Siem Reap. It was awesome and beyond my expectation. I took these photos with my Samsung at 6 AM, such a jaw dropping moment when I am very fond of cycling and I just feel like "WOW" Am I riding on heaven? I lost for words with the scenery of mist along the thoroughfare to Angkor Wat, it was just breathtakingly beautiful this morning after it has been raining from dusk til dawn. Wow!! This is a place that you should visit once in your lifetime.
Breath the wild air!! I was speechless with the aspect around me. it was cold and amazing, especially the complex temple.
Angkor Temple is also called Little Angkor, which is juxtaposed with the pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal of India, the Great Wall of China, Borobudur of Indonesia, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy, and the Colosseum of Rome. Angkor Wat, sometimes translated as Angkor Temple, is one of 600 temples, which is turned over in Zhou Daguan's "Zhenlafeng Tuji". The Tomb of Angkor was translated into Angkor because it was not only a place for sacrificing the great gods, but also the tomb of King Suyabamo II in his heyday. It was the place where King Sari was kept. Angor Thom refers to Angkor City as a whole. Angkor's gallery is actually the most beautiful gallery, walking in the gallery, on both sides of the beautiful apsara, will unconsciously slow down. The best way to visit should be - "the yearning for the approach, the corridor from outside to inside, and then climb up to the real height. There are sculptures inside and outside the surrounding corridor, which can be viewed slowly if time permits. The whole Angkor construction model, surrounded by a layer of corridors on all sides, four towers around the central tower (representing Mount Xumi), all levels and surrounding towers are highlighting the absolute nobility and solemnity of Mount Xumi, the whole structure constitutes a Mandala. Mandalas in Hinduism are symbols of the reincarnation of the universe. The building seems to imply a ritual process of religion. A little reminder to Meimei is that it's better to wear pants or long skirts to go to Angkor. You don't want to see this ladder climb. Hinduism calls it a necessary way to reach the bliss world. Only when you reach the peak without fear of hardship does it mean "perfection".
Little Angkor/Angkor Monastery, which is commonly called Angkor Wat, is located about two kilometers outside the South Gate of Big Angkor City. There are several reasons for his popularity. First, it is the largest temple in the world today. Second, it is the most complete and representative preservation of the whole Angkor monument. Third, it is the classic work of the Angkor dynasty, so the Cambodian flag still uses his five tall towers as totems. Angkor Jr. was founded by Suryavarman II, who reigned from 1131 to 1150, to worship the Vishnu of Hinduism. Architecturally, it consists of a moat, inner and outer walls, corridors, stone avenues, central shrines and five sacred towers. According to Hindu doctrine, the five sacred towers represent the five peaks of Mount Xumi, the residence of Hindu gods and the center of the universe. There are reliefs on the walls of the corridor, carving stories from Indian epics. Little Angkor is the only temple facing the West in all Angkor monuments. This is a mystery that many archaeologists are puzzled by. Some people believe that little Angkor is a mausoleum, not a temple. But many people believe that because of the Siem Reap River facing the east of Angkor, it is difficult to have room for development or activities, so break the rules and change direction, and it may be difficult to decide what exactly to think at that time.
Angkor Wat is a magical place. I watched the sunrise and it was incredible. The place is huge with a lot of stairs. If you want to take tons of pictures I will suggest you go by yourself so you better not take a tour, except if it's a private one. During summer it's really hot so prepare water, sunscreen or an umbrella. You can't wear t-shirts, tank tops or anything with your shoulders uncover and for the bottom, you must wear something long or at least at the knee level.
Angkor Wat, the most well preserved temple in Angkor Monument, is famous for its magnificent architecture and meticulous relief, and is also the largest temple in the world. Angkor Wat is also called Angkor Wat, but it has nothing to do with the grottoes. Just because the temple is called "Wat", the name of Angkor was introduced to the coast of Guangdong Province in ancient times, so it was translated into "Cave" in Guangzhou dialect. The corridor composed of four corridors, east, west, north and south, is a prominent architectural art feature of the Temple Hill at Angkor Wat. The corridor of Angkor Wat consists of three elements: the inner wall and the new wall, the outward row of columns and the roof of the double eaves. The long gallery, dozens of columns, arranged word by word, adds rhythm to the overall appearance of Angkor Grottoes. There are countless vertical lattice windows in the corridor. Time passes through cracks and thousands of years and condenses into reflections. Very beautiful. The "third floor platform" is a typical form of temple hill. Its basic characteristics are the square or rectangular platforms with multi-layer sequence reduction, adding corridors on each floor, placing pagodas on the highest platforms, and the overall appearance of the stone-built sacrificial buildings like pyramids. The pagoda symbolizes the peak of Mount Xumi and the corridor symbolizes the mountains surrounding Mount Xumi. Miaoshan, originated in South India, is the architectural form of the imperial temple of the Khmer King and the ancestral temple of his relatives. The steps leading to the main tower are called "Heaven Steps" and are almost vertical to the ground at a height of 13 meters. It is necessary to use both hands and feet in climbing to make the ancient believers realize the arduous road to heaven. In 1973, a French female tourist died of a fall while climbing. Her husband, in grief, donated money to build the escalator. Romantically called the "love ladder"
Angkor Monastery was built by Sue Bamo II in the early twelfth century, which is the most outstanding representative of Khmer culture. Statistics show that there are more than 2000 classic flying images here. Compared with other sites, the sculptures of Angkor Monastery are more exquisite and each one is lifelike. It's only about 10 minutes away. When we get to the scenic spot, there will be ticket inspectors who ask for parking tickets. The entrance is two minutes ahead of the ticket-checking area. Little Angkor opened at 05:00. When we arrived at the door, it was 04:52. We waited for a few minutes. It was released on time at 5 o'clock. We also needed to check tickets. There is no street lamp in Angkor Wat in the morning. Everyone illuminates it with a flashlight or mobile phone. The moat is on both sides. Although the road is wide enough, there is no fence, so we should pay attention to safety. The original name of Angkor Wat is Vrah Vishnulok, which means "the Temple of Vishnu". In the previous article, we mentioned "Vishnulok", which is one of the three main Hindu gods, representing "maintenance". In the late twelfth century, Angkor Temple gradually transformed, showing the characteristics of many Buddhist temples.
Cambodia's world-renowned" Angkor Wat" is a combination of religion and architecture. It is also an epic masterpiece carefully stacked with stones. Although "Stone can't be said to be the most pleasant ", but if Stone can speak, she will tell you the brilliant Khmer Dynasty and the great dreams of past generations. They all say that architecture is solidified music. She is like a solidified music thousands of years ago. She sticks to her own melody in the years forgotten by the world and never changes. Watching the sunrise in the morning is a compulsory course here. Be careful not to wear too exposed, otherwise you can't climb three floors.
